Trivia: Liquid silver is often referred to as “liquid heishi” or “silver heishi” and is a staple of Southwestern jewellery. It is fine, tubular, silver beads that are hand-strung together in what appears to be seamless strands of silver. When a bunch of these strands are strung together, liquid silver has a fluid feel almost like silk or water running through your fingers reflecting beautifully in the light- hence the name.
Please note: (1) All the jewellery in this collection is vintage, and thus neither new nor in mint condition. Wear, dents, scratches, oxidation etc. are in keeping with the age of the jewellery.
(2) All the jewellery has been gently cleaned to remove surface dirt and oils but not the patina- which in our view adds immensely to the appeal of vintage pieces. While in great condition (none of the jewellery is broken/chipped/in need of repair), all were previously owned by someone else, and while not perfect each is full of old history and charm. Please use accompanying photographs to make your decision and be sure to ask any questions you may have before purchase.
(3) It is also worth reminding that since the jewellery is shot in close-up mode, the pieces may look bigger than actual size. Conversely, some large pieces may look smaller in pictures. Always refer to the mentioned dimensions.
